What type of floor tiles are these?

I am trying to identify the type and brand of floor tiles in my kitchen so I can replace a couple of them. Unfortunately, there is no box, no label and no brand identifier on them. I think they are vinyl tiles, in an off-white and black cover , with a cork backing and fit together with locking edges (see pics here). Anybody have any ideas of the manufacturer or brand name?

Which Dr Who episode is where everything is a pure white landscape?

I recall an espisode with I think Tom baker, where everything was pure WHITE outside the tardis. No features just pure white, I think maybe a ruined castle. Like the film 'nothing' with David Hewlett. I would love to watch it again!

When can I see the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Trailer?

I was among the unfortunate many who was not able to attend to Doctor Who panel at SDCC 2013 and thus did not have the pleasure of viewing the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Trailer; I know Steven Moffat made it abundantly clear that he did not want to see anyone leaking the trailer, so I'm not really expecting to see any pirated versions. I guess the question I'm trying to ask is: When will the BBC allow the trailer to be public?

Is there more classic Who to come on the BBC iPlayer?

So I've been watching 1970's Doctor Who on the BBC iPlayer. The Tom Baker section lists stories available on the iPlayer as 1,2,3,4,5,9,10,12,13,14 (this is nothing to do with any other story numbering). Is there a trick to getting the missing numbers (6,7,8,11), or did they just err? And does anyone know if there is more classic Who likely to be added in the future?

Paying for cleanup NJ rental

Isn't my landlord responsible for payment in cleanup of heavy Hurricaine flood damage to rental? I was told to get Flood insurance for my possessions, which I have, with a limited policy I could only get with Management pulling strings. Now multimillionaire landlord wants me to pay for cleanup through my insurance (which doesn't cover that.) Is this legal in NJ?

Torchwood/Doctor Who Viewing Order

Just received my Torchwood:Children of Earth DVD! I also have sitting here the first season set of Dr. Who (the first "modern" season...with bigger budget than the classic show). While I realize TCOE is considered fairly stand-alone, would it be best if I watch the Dr. Who stuff first? And, for that matter, since I'm probably going to watch the other Torchwoods eventually, even though I know they're not supposed to be as good, should I go ahead and do that before viewing TCOE? Or does everything work just as well if I approach it completely scattershot?

Does anyone know of where I could get (or download) a good sized copy of this poster (advertising the fictional magician Li H'sen Chang), seen in the classic Dr Who story 'The Talons of Weng Chiang'? I'd love to get a large sized copy to frame for my living room for some subtle geek chic!

Doctorin' the house

Help my son get his Tardis on. I'm currently decorating my 7 year old sons bedroom, and he is a big Doctor Who fan. He has asked me for a giant (I guess 6 ft) tardis on one wall of his painted bedroom. My initial thought was to paint - but I don't have the requisite skills really, so I was looking for a Fathead / WallBangers equivalent. I'm not sure the custom option on WallBangers will allow me to use a copyright image. Do you have any other recommendations for giant Tardis resources? Or maybe a suggestion to get a large scale picture onto a bedroom wall - I'm in the UK if it makes a difference.

Christmas Invasion

In the 2005 episode of Doctor Who titled The Christmas Invasion there was a song near the end that starts "Well I woke up today". The song takes place as The Doctor's 10th personality is choosing his outfit from the stores in the Tardis. Can this song be had in it's entirety anywhere?

It's like a what in here?

DoctorWhoFilter: in the UK we have a TV show called Doctor Who, in which this dude with a long scarf travels through time in what is essentially a small garden shed called a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space). More extraordinary than it's time travelling ability though, the TARDIS is actually bigger on the inside - you walk into small garden shed to find huge room the size of a small television studio. Hence, in the UK when you, for example, get into a car that looks kinda small but is actually incredibly roomy inside, one might say, "bloody hell, it's like a TARDIS in here." So the question is, is there an American equivalent?
